Expedition Adventure Abroad VIVA ‘First’

River cruise specialist, VIVA Cruises, is launching four new itineraries on the North and Baltic Seas on board the company’s first ever expedition ship, MS Seaventure.

The new cruises will start in April 2021 and have a capacity for just 164 guests.

The vessel, formerly MS BREMEN, was acquired by VIVA Cruises’ parent company, Scylla AG, from Hapag-Lloyd at the beginning of this month.

Her maiden voyage, Springtime Maritime Experiences, will take place 18-25 April 2021, departing from and arriving to the German city of Bremerhaven.
From there, the seven-night cruise will take guests to Wismar (Germany), famous for its historic old town; Stettin, Poland’s ‘green city’; Stralsund (Germany); Copenhagen, capital of Denmark; Heligoland, Germany’s only offshore island; and Hamburg, Germany’s ‘Gateway to the World’. Prices start from €2,795 (approximately £2,470) per person in an outside cabin.

The ship will then sail on three further seven-night cruises whose first and last port will also be Bremerhaven.

To celebrate the launch, VIVA Cruises is offering a €350 voucher to be redeemed across VIVA Cruises’ European river itineraries in 2021 when booking a cruise on MS Seaventure before 31 December 2020.

As a small ship, it has just 82 cabins and suites for 164 guests. Its size allows it to enter remote harbours and, because of its size, change course at short notice to observe animals and nature.
